This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Our first snow

Now that we are getting dumped on with snow and the hives are not covered yet. There is no reason to panic. Bees will still do nicely in these temperatures. Covering the hives by Thanksgiving weekend is still an option. A person could easily wait that long without stressing out the bees. Fighting the snow depth is another matter if the hives are hard to reach. My plan is still to cover my bees in a week or so.
